Could be the power cord or plug are defective. As I recall, this is an older mechanical machine (old but Good!) so it is probably worth fixing.

SOURCE: Thread bunching up on bottom of fabric

with all the stuff you say I think that you should try what I do clean it with canned air. Then change the needle you may have a burred or bent needle. and when you clean the machine make sure to use a qtip with oil on it and swab the bobbin holder it may have broken needle piece stuck in it. if after that is done it still not working then adjust the tension taking care to note the positions first.make sure you change only one at a time and put it aback if it doesn't fix the problem and try another position. you may need to try the specialneedle for the fabric (stretchy or jean type)

Try making sure that the thread is all the way in the tension disk then test it out. I had a similar experience with an old machine.

Not sure if your model is the creative 1475. The closest I can find at a service website of Pfaff is 1473. Check if this is similar to your model and it shows where the balance wheel goes.

Thread caught in pfaff 1475 shuttle


Spray a little WD40 on the broken thread, it makes it easier to pull out, also use dental picks to get in there.

Looking for repair manual for pfaff 1475 sewing machine


There are a number of sites that offer the Instruction Manual for a fee. See the following:

I was able to find a free download of the Instruction Manual for the 1473 if that would be of any assistance:

Not sure if these will have enough information to help with repair but perhaps the 1473 manual will give you an idea whether the information you require is likely to be in the Instruction Manual before you purchase.
